Viikate – Kuu kaakon yllä 10 vuotta (FIN)

Viikate – Kuu kaakon yllä 10 vuotta

This summer in Ilosaarirock Festival the bastions of Finnish melancholic metal, Viikate, will play an exclusive gig to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their most treasured album Kuu kaakon yllä. The gold award winning and chart-topping album is a staple in every music lover’s record collection, and made Viikate what it is today: the rackety rock crew everyone knows far and wide.

To great excitement of their fans, the lovely gentlemen of Viikate have agreed to play every song on the album from start to finish, and during the gig the audience will be treated to some special guests and extras on stage. Some of the classic songs, like Viina, terva & hauta and Kuu kaakon yllä are perfect examples of Viikate’s ability to uniquely combine melancholic melodies, clean folk guitars and robust riffs that puts them in a league of their own. If you’re keen to witness one of Finland's best kept secrets, you know where to be this July, right?
